Dan Phillips Creates Trash Refuges for Homes & Hearts

Two days in a row now, I’ve come back to Green Beings to get my bearings, running away from the ravages of the modern world, where I’m increasingly convinced that we will self-destruct.

Posting Richard Branson’s Plan to Blast Off from Planet Earth seemed like a sensible feature five minutes ago.

Michael Stravato for The New York Times CYCLES Dan Phillips builds houses out of salvaged items, like frame samples, which he used on a ceiling.Until I stumbled through the door of Dan Phillips trash houses in Huntsville, Tex. For a moment, I stood in awe looking at the NYTimes photos of these trash-houses. But my inner mind was going Huntsville, Tex., Huntsville, Tex.

OMG! Look at this chair fashioned out of cattle bones. Rebirth from death.

America In Last Place Meeting Our Global Aid Commitments

In 2005 the G8 countries met at Gleneagles, agreeing to aim for 0.7% GNP contributions to developing countries. Rudd Leeuw has published the results through 2008, via globalissues.org.

In America we love to talk about our enormous generosity to the rest of the world.

Inquiring Minds | Liberals and Atheists Have Higher IQs

RedTracker| A study published last month says that more intelligent people are statistically more likely to exhibit social values and religious and political preferences that are novel to the human species in evolutionary history. Liberalism and atheism, and for men (but not women), preference for sexual exclusivity correlate with higher intelligence, as measured by IQ. 

The study categories two sets of preferences and values: “evolutionarily novel” to describe preferences and values that humans are not biologically designed to have, and “evolutionarily familiar.”

Avinadav Begin | 'The End of Conflict'

Avinadav Begin, 36, grandson of Israeli Prime Minister Menache, Begin and son of Benny Begin, “a minister without portfolio in the current government” says the LA Times, has written a book”The End of Conflict”.

Perhaps it’s only published in Hebrew, because I can’t find it on Amazon. Begin’s book website “The End of Conflict” has free downloads.

Begin credits his family with raising him to think as an individual, and he does.

Interviewed by the LATimes, Avinadav Begin answers a wide variety a questions, in a voice that transcends the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I will be reading Begin’s downloads this weekend, because his voice captures the essence of our purpose at Anne of Carversville.

Questions from the LATimes:

In your book, you argue that the root of the conflict is the psychological human need to belong to frameworks that inevitably wind up dictating violence, and that recognizing this ends the conflict. Is that correct? This is only part of it. Before examining people’s need for collective identity, we must first be looking at how we perceive reality through the social and biological conditioning that prevent us from seeing reality as it is… . It is something deeper than national or collective identity.

Looking for Alien Life? Get Your Head Out of the Clouds

The hope of finding other forms of intelligent life beyond Earth fuels human imaginations and an overabundance of conspiracy theories.

Loving the headline and photo, I read The Elusive Search for Aliens only to come within a second of abandoning the page with a yawn. Unless you have a lot of time on your hands or know nothing about SETI, skip the first half of the article, beginning here:

By focusing on radio signals, however, the search for intelligent life has been extremely limited. As in forensic science, the clues left by alien activity might be very subtle and require sophisticated scientific techniques. An advanced civilization might engage in large-scale astro-engineering, reconfiguring its planetary system or even modifying its host star, effects that could be observed from Earth or near space.

Chris Porter's 'Free the Pod' Seeks Safe Release of Entertainment Dolphins

Updated on Mon, April 26, 2010 by Registered CommenterAnne

Updated on Fri, April 30, 2010 by Registered CommenterAnne

When searching for news about dolphins, Miami is always front and center. This visual about the Miami Dolphin’s release of football player Chris Porter underscores man’s current relationship with dolphins.

Many of us regard dolphins as human play toys.

The photo is not Chris Porter, who says he will free his last 17 dolphins.

Chris Porter trained Tilikum, the orca responsible for the death of Dawn Brancheau, 40, at SeaWorld in Orlando last month.

For the last nine years Porter has operated a lucrative business, capturing animals in the Solomon Islands and selling them to aquariums. Mr Porter said his friend Dawn’s death shook him and proved that trainers and aquariums can’t meet the needs of such intelligent animals.

Porter says that he still believes that some animals must be captive educational ambassadors, but performing tricks at SeaWorld is not providing much of an education on the consciousness and planetary needs of these gifted creatures.

Chris Porter initially set out to save dolphins, worth only $20 when captured. Last year dolphins were worth $140,000, not only for their value as Japanese sushi but as performing animals in places like SeaWorld. 

These gorgeous photos of the Atlantis, the Palm-Resort on the Palm Jumeirah Dubai reflect the upscale price that people are willing to play to commune with dolphins. In my recent article about dolphin consciousness, I was surprised to discover all the spa-like, meditation-related vacations, and also therapy sessions, that now use dolphins in direct contact with humans.

Could Sugar Daddy's Cupcakes Bring Peace to the Middle East?

Perhaps I’m going about this love, war, religion, East Jerusalem, Israeli-Palestiinian conflict all wrong. Stepping back and looking for peace inspiration in cupcakes, I learned something new today.

I gave Jordan’s Sugar Daddy’s the brush-off last fall, being in my usual passionate, serious, impatient mood about all the problems in our world. The NYTimes article American-Style Cupcakes Find a Niche in the Middle East showed up in a Google search on Jordanian women.

My focus was fatwahs and the rights of Jordanian women. I had no time to waste for Sugar Daddy’s. Today, Sugar Daddy’s message got through my muddled brain: ‘desserts’ is ‘stressed’ spelled backwards. Brilliant. Probably everyone knows this but me.

Very clever, daddy. And I like the music, too. (Turn off is in upper right hand corner of landing page.)

Can cupcakes transcend politics? Sugar Daddy’s founder Fadi Jaber is a son of Palestinian refugees, although he grew up a student at the multinational Aramco shool in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. Besides his shop in Abdoun, a well-to-do neighborhood in Jordan, Mr. Jaber has also opened a Sugar Daddy’s in Beirut and in Dubai.
